Rated 5 out of 5 Service Pro's After over 3,000, essentially more than 1/4 of a mile of holes, my RH228VC stopped.I did an online service request, printed out the UPS shipper tags and sent it off late Friday night. By the following Friday UPS delivered it to me.The variable speed trigger switch had been replaced along with a new cord and new bit holder.It is back on line and we are back at it.Fantastic service and the best hammer drill on the market!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brick killer First job I ever had to do with my company was to put some drop in anchors into this brick building they gave me this tool and I loved how quick it went into the brick! July 29, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Versatile and powerful Without a doubt, this is the go-to tool for about a dozen different tasks. It's light enough to replace your hammer drill, heavy duty enough to function as a chipper, and durable enough to last.I've used this for everything from pre-drilling in bricks to chipping away concrete - and felt confident for a variety of tasks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great features on the RH228VC The RH228VC is a great hammer drill from small holes to large in concrete. I especially like the fact that you can also use it as a chipper for removing tile. Great tool don't know how I got along without it for so long!!! July 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by An excellent hammer drill. Drills fast with little pressure. great for drilling walls for 1/4" anchors. July 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great hammer drill Great drill for drilling holes to wire in foundation. Very versatile to drill small to large hole sizes. July 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by One tough drill As an electrician and do-it-yourselfer, I have demanded a lot of these drills, and they have stood the test of time. Our company uses these and other Bosch tools daily, and they take a beating. Overall it is lightweight and easy to handle. May 19, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Value for Money After removing concrete from a stair riser with the hammer drill: great tool, lots of power, easy to change bit, light! May 17, 2014
